(CMR) The DPP's office appears to be perplexed on the sentencing of Deputy Chief Immigration Officer, Garfield Wong, as they requested the matter be postponed again today.
The matter was listed before Magistrate Donalds this morning but was quickly adjourned for another mention next week Wednesday.
Wong was to be originally been sentenced last month but Magistrate Grace Donalds adjourned that matter over allegations of potential perjury having been committed by officers involved in the matter.
Won's attorney, Dennis Brady, indicated at the beginning of that hearing that he had come across a recording which might contain evidence of perjury having been committed during Mr. Wong’s trial. Mr. Brady also stated that he had filed appeals against Mr. Wong’s convictions.
The matter has been ongoing for almost 4 1/2 years when Wong was arrested in Dec. 2013, and was the fourteenth time the matter has been before the court. Some persons are now speculating about the impact that these perjury allegations could have on the entire case.
Wong was found not guilty of DUI in August but guilty of leaving the scene of an accident and careless driving as previously reported by CMR.
